The last week has brought a few major changes in my life that have created a mix of emotions.
As many of you will know I have been my mum’s full time carer for over ten years. But mentally and physically she has deteriorated to an extent that I am no longer able to look after. To that end she is now permanently in a nursing home. She is of course not happy with the situation but I had to tell her some additional news that I knew would upset even more, and it did.
I have found employment in England which of course means I will be unable to see my mum on a regular basis. I think that news upset her more than her being moved into a nursing home. To say I feel guilty would be putting it mildly but I know it is the best for both of us.
Thankfully my brother and kids will visit on alternative weeks so my mum will receive at least one visitor a week. I will of course write often to her and send many postcards.
The job is near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire (Bucks) which is bordered with Oxfordshire. Where I will be staying is only about a 40 minute drive to the centre of Oxford. This situation will allow me to bring the many Morse/Lewis/Endeavour video ideas I have to fruition.
Hopefully it will also allow me to meet some of at some time in the future.
I of course will not be posting anything in the next week due to packing etc etc etc.
So the situation and events are something of a curate’s egg. I believe however, it is filled with more good than bad.
Thank you all for your continued support. Once I am settled I will write a post and add some photos.
